He's a BIG boy!

I went to the doctor yet again this week. When I was having my ultra-sound the tech told me that this is the week that they need to measure the baby again. After taking the measurements, she told me that the baby weighs 4 lbs, 1 oz. And that he is a big boy! Wow! They are supposed to induce me early and I am glad of that. I have a feeling he is going to be huge! Being diabetic, I am not surprised that he is big. That usually is the case. I am just 29 weeks(tomorrow). They will do another ultra-sound to check growth again in 3 weeks. I guess that will tell us more. I am just glad that all is well and he is a healthy baby.

I am posting 2 pictures that the tech gave me yesterday. It has been a while since I have gotten any pics. While she was doing the ultra-sound, we could see the baby open and close his mouth. He was swallowing. I could see his little tongue. The tech showed us white stuff on his head and said that is the baby's hair! Yay! He has hair. I hope he has lots of it! I am so pleased that we got to see so much yesterday.

I am also very pleased that my mom was here from Ohio and got to come with me and see too. She left and went back yesterday after we came back from my appointment. She came here to help me get the nursery ready. She painted the room and it looks terrific! The color of paint I chose is Shasta Daisy. It is a very pale yellow and looks creamy in some light. Now I have to order the bedding and get the furniture in there. I will post pics when I have it ready. I cannot wait to have it all done! I am getting more and more excited to meet our little one!

I am so excited. It is so neat to see your child even before they are born. At the rate he is growing they may want to deliver him even early. You have 10 wks to go and they really grow alot that last few weeks. I will be praying for an easy delivery. Love ya, Bev
